You can't walk down 9th street in this town without tripping over a journalism student. While I am glad to be a journalism major, I'm also very scared. I'm very scared that I'm going to fail, and I'm scared that I won't find a job. These are a common feelings and I know I'm not alone, but nonetheless it's hard to get out of bed everyday, go to school, and do homework every night while feeling this way.
I just keep trudging along though, hoping things will get better. My field within journalism is strategic communication, but for right now I have to do a lot of prerequisite classes, like photography, audio, and video, which are all not my thing. I think I'm in a lot of "weed out" classes because the journalism school is really challenging. There's honestly no point to this post besides, "my major is really hard," which is what everyone says. I guess my advice is to just power through the tough times. Soon, I will be in the strat comm classes and i can maybe enjoy life a little more, but for right now, maybe I'm not meant to be enjoying it right now? This is my third year of college, but I feel like no one starts enjoying it until maybe their senior year when they can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Some days are better than others, I just hope you're doing well.
